Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I'm preparing to assemble a new pc and I will be doing a net install of Debian. I have pre-compiled kernel 2.6.3 for the "new" pc on my old box and I'm wondering if there is any way that I can install with this kernel rather than doing a "2.4.xxbf2.4" install off the netinst cd? I hate to answer all of the kernel configuration questions if I'm immediately going to install a new kernel.
Is there an option during the install process (I can't believe I've missed one but...) where I can "skip" the kernel configuration and install my own? If not, is there some point where I can exit out of the installation and have enough to install my kernel?
I know I'm probably only talking about saving 15-20 minutes, but time is time.
